“Illuminating Hidden Harvests” report launch
March 16, 2023
lluminating Hidden Harvests is a global initiative of FAO, Duke University, and WorldFish to generate and disseminate new evidence about the importance of small-scale fisheries to inform policy and practice. A major output is the Illuminating Hidden Harvest: The contributions of small-scale fisheries to sustainable development (IHH) report, which assesses the current environmental, economic, gender, food security and nutrition, and governance dimensions of small-scale fisheries globally. Over 800 authors and experts worldwide contributed to the report. The IHH report will be launched through a hybrid webinar on 16 March 2023 to recap key findings and tie them to recommendations of the report. In a conversation with small-scale fisheries stakeholders from government, small-scale fisheries organizations and research, the launch will explore how the methods and findings can transform understanding of national small-scale fisheries and contribute to improvements in policy, legislation, statistics and monitoring as well as targeted support and recognition of small-scale fisheries.
